Dominate possession with precision passing and good decision making!
The widely popular Tiki Taka style of play, made popular by both Barcelona and the Spanish National Team, can dismantle teams when implemented properly. Although many coaches would embrace the chance to dominate with this style, the only way to get to that point is through effective technical skill and a thoughtful tactical approach. Alan Kirkup teaches you how to bring Tiki Taka alive with your team.
Coach Kirkup starts with a breakdown of the essential points of Tiki Taka and what is needed in order to get your team to play the system. A key for this system is recognizing when and where you have a numbers advantage and moving the ball to those areas. Another key is teaching your players to gain rest while in possession as opponents are working to win back the ball.
He alternates through a progression of chalkboard analysis and practice sessions to further provide coaching points. Included is a lengthy match analysis to help you identify specific situations in which this system can be used.
Now is the time to teach your players to play a possession game based on passing and receiving, not kick and chase.
